to do this quilt, and managed to pull all these out of my stash. and so, the size of the quilt was somewhat determined by the fact that i wanted to make kind of a lap quilt, tv-watching, cover-up quilt, but also by the amount of black and red fabric that i had. it couldn't get too big. when it's gone, the quilt's done. right. so as long as i came out, you know, even, and i didn't have a hole in one corner, that would've necessitated a trip to the store. so, anyway, so that's how i chose that color scheme. and this quilt's often done in two colors, but it can also be scrappy, but you want to have some contrast. absolutely. so, i did red and black, but also, you could think light and dark. exactly. without the light and dark, you really lose... lose what's going on. yeah. the block, yeah. and what's fun is the way the stars come together in the quilt, and you're not actually making the star. no. right, no inset -- you're not doing any partial seaming or any diamond stuff. nothing like that. yeah, exactly.
